I'm amazed over and again how much behind/ spoiled in so many things the US appears to be, even needing such simple tips..and you have to visit a HEALTH STORE to buy green(non toxic) cleaning products??? oh my..

All I use is vinegar and baking soda. My house smells like a salad every Monday, but salads are green too....
If you know a Nurse/Doc/Vet, see if you can get your hands on some old, used, cloth surgical pack wraps. THE best cleaning cloths in the world and they last forever...and ever...

I don't use a Swiffer mop. But, I do use the Swiffer dust clothes. They work way better with grabbing the dust than an ordinary cloth ripped from an old T-shirt. The Swiffer clothes can be washed and reused a number of times before they end up falling apart and have to be tossed.

I already do 3 out of the 4. I wish I had the time and ability to make my own cleaning products since they would be more eco-friendly.

I already do most of this.I do buy paper towels but rarely use them so they last a long tim. I buy the natural ones instead of the bleached ones. With animals in the house I do use them sometimes. I think a roll lasts about a year.

There are many neighborhood associations that outright prohibit outside laundry lines. I didn't care at first, til my MIL told me to first hang a favorite shirt I ruined with cooking oil outside. 2 days later, the grease spots were gone. Had I just washed it, those spots would've been permanent. Good ol' sunshine did the trick. It's not just an Eco-friendly tip, it's better. So I fight those community covenants when I can.
